I forgot to mention, I paste screen shots into my photo editor, where I do the cropping, then each shot goes into MS Word where I can drag each picture box to size it, and line up with earlier pictures, finally I print to a PDF file using CutePDF writer.

Thanks for the info on PM and PS. But is the agreement time limited? Once PM and PS see the demand, not for downloading whole issues, for on a item by item research basis, they might expect more money, and don't forget, Google is about making money, not about providing a free public service. They are only just beginning to explore the money making possibilities of the WWW.

I have a number of issues going back to the '30s, having access to all of the issues, is useful to me, because in the past, labour was cheap, so the way things were done in those days, would be useful today, to hobbyists without much money, but lots of spare time.

Time traveler,

Yes I have some older issues that I picked up on ebay, will be scanning them in now. Matbe we all should start scanning what we have and placing the scans into the Internet Archive.

Is that legal if Google has them tied up?

Most of mine are without covers, I bought them used in the early '70s.

Maybe grab missing covers off Google?

Time traveler,

I work for a library consortium and am very familiar with this are of the copyright law. Regardless of what Google orthe publisher may think, there was no renewal on these items and they are in the public domain. These issues can be put up without the covers as they ca be added later. I am planning on putting up many scifi pulps which are in the public domain, some without covers, which I will add later, this is fine especially if all of the pages are intact.

Thanks Gerry,

Seeing I got a scanner, I will give it a go with my old stuff, as for your SiFi stuff, I will look forward to it.
